Mo-Lor, World's Hunger {purposely leaving no mana cost, similarly to cards such as Ancestral Vision}

Legendary Creature - Ooze

Eminence - At the beginning of your upkeep, choose target opponent at random. Then, choose target permanent that player owns at random and destroy it. You gain 3 life.

: Put Mo-Lor, World's Hunger from the command zone onto the battlefield under it's owners control. Any player may activate this ability, but only during their upkeep.

When Mo-Lor, World's Hunger enters the battlefield, sacrifice half of your permanents at random, rounded down.


Make a Dredge Commander.

Thanks everybody, when I have time I'll try the As Foretold and Ancestral Vision version and RNR_Gaming's idea. It's also nice to see more uro hate

Also Thing in the Ice  Flip looks amazing here thanks I don't know how I hadn't tried it I might actually try to bring them together maybe mix in Fires of Invention not sure how well it'd work though, but looks fun

CoCo is instant speed. CoCo Jr. is sorcery speed. Also, you need sorceries that do enough to be worth playing on their own.

I'd recommend some sort of RUG control list. Anger of the Gods and friends can control the board, Ancestral Vision fills your hand up, and Crashing Footfalls gives you a win condition that doesn't die to your wrath effects.

Kari Zev's Expertise is good for dumping some of your suspend cards out of your hand and also stealing something like Uro and hitting extra hard.

Of course you have cards like Serum Visions and Flame Slash as general use sorceries, mostly to buff out your number of hits. See the Truth is Anticipate at worst or another draw 3 at best. Run Snappy to get the most value out of it.

A couple Cultivates are worth considering. Mana dorks are also pretty good, they can get you to your 3-drop sorceries early.

Shit, I meant Ancestral Vision not ancestral recall lol. I also just realized Averna is in French, according to the MTGgoldfish translations whenever you cascade you may put a land from among the exiled cards onto the battlefield under your control.

This is what I have so far: Ancestral Vision, Death's Shadow, Infinite Obliteration, Legion's End, Echo Circlet, Cerulean Drake, and Sword of Body and Mind. I need help finding more spells that can increase the power of this deck.

Path to Exile 4 times to make it modern legal, Swords to Plowshares isnt.

Reduce Spell Snare to 1-2 copies. Thats normaly enough.

Archmage's Charm for Counter or Draw. Ancestral Vision for Draw. Serum Visions for more Filter. Mana Leak is a good 2 drop counter. Search for Azcanta  Flip is a good filter, too and can dig deep like Narset.

Tylord2894 on Chandra, Torch of Defiance and …

5 months ago

You can not use Chandra, Torch of Defiance to cast spells that don't have a mana cost, like Ancestral Vision.

In the spell casting process, there are several steps, but the one that we're concerned about here is the process of determining and paying costs. The cost of a spell like Ancestral Vision is nonexistence. This forms an unpayable cost. There are a few ways to get around this. The easiest way is to use things like As Foretold to cast them "without paying their mana cost." This will allow you to forego the unpayable cost formed by the spell's nonexistence mana cost.

Conversely, something that simply allows you to cast a spell doesn't get around this unpayable cost. This is what Chandra does. She exiles the unpayable spell and gives you the opportunity to cast it, but "cast" is the operative word here. You still have to follow the normal process of casting a spell which will cause you to try and pay an unpayable cost.

Hope this helps!!
